São Roque Museum, opened in 1905, in Lisbon, initially focused on the Treasure of St. John the Baptist’s Chapel. Today, silver and goldsmithery, paraments, painting, sculpture, reliquaries and oriental art can be seen among the most expressive segments of a collection that weaves into one single strand history, religion, architecture and art, establishing a line of continuity through the centuries.
